About the event

This ride's for you — whether you've just started exploring off-road, or you've ridden up Wolf Hill and looked down from the Kinsol Trestle more times than you can count.  Anyone who can ride 100km and has spent any amount of time riding gravel can do this ride.  The emphasis is on fun and having a great day with lots of breaks.  We typically split up over the climbs, re-grouping frequently.  On the flatter parts, we can peloton up for efficiency.  Pace should be chatty throughout and walking up the worst of Wolf Hill is perfectly acceptable.

We'll likely run it rain or shine, since there's no bad weather, just bad gear selection.  As a membership benefit, Tripleshot will contribute to ferry fares.
